Independent Spirit Awards 2023 Winners: Live Updates

The 38th Film Independent Spirit Awards takes place on Santa Monica Beach, where Oscar-winning favorite ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ leads a field of film and television nominees at the breezy annual awards bash.

Hosted by Hasan Minhaj, this year’s Spirits will stream live on the IMDb and Film Independent YouTube channels, with presenters including “Elvis” star Austin Butler, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Troy Kotsur, Taylor Paige, Melanie Lynskey, Aubrey Plaza, Daniel Dae Kim and Jamie Lee Curtis and more.

Nomadland boss Chloé Zhao and CODA director Siân Heder are honorary co-chairs. For the first time, the film and television acting categories have gone gender-neutral, with 10 nominees each. Also new for 2023: a higher budget cap of $30 million for eligible films, with an increase to $1 million for the John Cassavetes Award, which honors the Indian spirits of filmmaking.

Everything Everywhere has eight film nominations, including starring Oscar nominee Michelle Yeoh. Castmates Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quan are both ready to support the performance, and Stephanie Hsu is nominated for her breakthrough performance. The multiverse-hopping sci-fi drama is also nominated for Writer, Editor, Director and Best Picture.

Hot on his heels is Todd Field’s “Tár” with seven nominations including director, picture, screenplay, cinematographer, editor and lead for Cate Blanchett.

Charlotte Wells’ “Aftersun” received five nominations of its own, with Paul Mescal vying for leading actor and Frankie Corio being nominated for Breakthrough Performance. The father-daughter drama is also nominated for Camera and Editing Awards and Best First Feature.
